Make sure it's authentic! Look for a made in finland sticker somewhere around the back (where the battary goes) also another good way to check is to take a picture and see if it's really 5mp and high quality, and make sure it's running maemo (watch some videos on youtube and compare).

The N900 is made in Korea rather than Finland, so a "Made in Finland" label should ring warning bells.

Dead pixels are extremely hard to spot since they are very very small each. I just noticed a dead pixel myself and i will return it because of it. It is almost no bother but nonetheless.
Best way to spot a dead pixel is on a black screen. Weird enough i believe with laptops this is the other way around.

How far out is Amazon? ...and I'd assume they won't be shipping any of the Finland but Korean made ones. Although ... the second batch... heck I may just wait until they are in stock at Amazon before placing an order.

they ARE in stock. I preordered in late Sept. Not sure why they're still not here yet. Don't get me started.

I wish the DFW Maemo users would get together and go to Irving and stage a protest in front of the Nokia offices here about this preorder fiasco. It is really being swept under a rug.

Hi everyone,

Iím getting a friend of mine to purchase the N900 for me from UAE, and Iíd like him to test the phone to see if it has any problems before he brings it to Australia for me. The problem is heís not much of a techie, so Iíll need to explain how he has to check the phone in laymanís terms. This is just to be safe, so that I donít get a defective unit when itís already in my hands.

Based on what Iíve searched around the forums, he should look out for:

1) microphone Ė test to see if it works, can make phone calls, other person can hear him clearly

2) reboots Ė play around with the phone to see if it randomly reboots?

3) dead pixel test Ė use the link http://www.gdargaud.net/Hack/DeadPixels.html or http://jasonfarrell.com/misc/deadpixeltest.php

Is there a concrete way to check the reboot problem, besides what I mentioned above?

Did I miss anything else? Iím specifically looking for faults that is covered by warranty (ie hardware, not necessarily software). If I did miss a thread listing all these faults, do point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance
